Kukulkan and Quetzalcoatl
Kukulkan and the Aztec Quetzalcoatl

The Maya deity Kukulkan and the Aztec Quetzalcoatl (both meaning "feathered serpent ") figured prominently in their respective cultures of origin. Kukulkan (Q'uq'umatz in K'iche' Maya) is associated with Vision Serpent iconography in Maya art. Kukulkan was an official state deity of Itza in the northern Yucatan . In many Mesoamerican cultures, the serpent was regarded as a portal between two worlds.


The worship of Quetzalcoatl dates back to as early as the 1st century BC at Teotihuacan. In the Postclassic period (AD 900 -1519 ), the cult was centered at Cholula. Quetzalcoatl was associated with wind, the dawn, the planet Venus as the morning star, and was a tutelary patron of arts, crafts, merchants, and the priesthood.

Recent Scholastic research claims that a Snake-like a creature dwelled among the Maya and demanded worship, but was in opposition to the death cult. 
There are documents and recent discoveries suggesting that Kukulkan, or a manifestation of this creature joined an Earth Defense group created by the Guardian . These reports suggest that Kukulkan fought Freons and was initially very successful, but reported claim that the being fell victim to a Freon trap , using stolen Saresii or Kermac technology.
